My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I really enjoyed this book and feel sad to be leaving this world behind for a while. I can't wait for the next book in this series.
Brianna doesn't stand out in a crowd. Well, that's an understatement, it's like she's not even there. Especially with guys, they can't even make eye contact with her. She's been introduced to her crush for the last two years, Blake, so many times and he still doesn't know she's alive. She thinks she must have some kind of problem with her pheromones.
Until the night she's at a party and her charm bracelet breaks. Blake looks at her, and sees her, really sees her, and her life will never be the same again.
Brianna thinks she's just an ordinary girl until she accidentally bonds her soul with Blakes, and he tells her about her heritage. His one sided version anyway, she learns more as time goes on. But her heritage means that she and Blake are mortal enemies, and one of them must kill the other to survive.
The characters were good, though I felt that some of them could have been fleshed out a little more. Especially her parents, who seem too naive as to what their daughter is. Brianna is a likable protag and I enjoyed her relationship and interactions with Blake. The friendship that she has with Haley and Christy felt very realistic to me, girls can be bitchy when it comes to guys. Having to keep her magic secret does cause some sticky situations for Brie with her friends. And Austin, an appealing, love to hate bad boy who made this story interesting.
This book is a fast paced, fairly quick read with the mystery of Brianna's heritage and powers being gradually revealed. I think fans of paranormal romance will definitely enjoy this one.
